Riddle: experience vs. memory

Daniel Kahneman, TED Talk. Our experiencing self vs. remembering self. The remembering self is the one that makes decisions. The experiencing self has no voice in this choice. “We don’t actually choose between experiences. We choose between memories of experiences. … We think of our futures as anticipated memories (rather than experiences).”
